Fishermen. Two Exceptional Works.

Left, Artist: Myles Cavanaugh, Shad Fisherman, 18 x 28",  Oil on Panel (16 x 22").

Myles was one of our first scholarship recipients in 1992, and has submitted this wonderful original painting called “Shad Fisherman”, depicting the familiar scene witnessed by anyone passing over the free bridge this time of year — a lonely boat adrift in the blue early morning light hoping for the catch of the day. Yes, that would be Shad.

Myles' complete bio can be found on his homepage and is represented by Silverman Gallery in Buckingham, PA.

Thanks Myles. Really Nice!

Right, Artist: Luiz Vilela, Gentry, as a Fisherman, 18 x 28", Oil painted directly on to acid-free poster board.

Luiz won Best in Show last year for his stunning winter painting of Lewis Island, and First Place the year prior. We were thrilled to receive one of his portraits this year. Luiz seems to do everything amazingly well. Gentry is a friend of Luiz and was excited to see himself portrayed this way, against the backdrop of New Hope, PA, with the seining nets of Lewis Island. So we have a connection between last years and this. This is one of those paintings where the eyes follow you around the room.

Thanks Luiz! We love everything you do.
